8:03am

8:04am
new town connected. they have suffered a loss as a result of this unspeakable crime. out of respect for the families and until the facts are known the nra has refrained from comments. while some of you have tried to exploit the tragedy for political gain we have remained silent. now, we must speak. this is for the safety of our nation's children. because of all the noise and the anchor that has been directed towards us over the past few weeks no one and nobody has addressed the most important pressing
8:05am
and the immediate questions that we face. how do we protect our children right now? starting today. we need to do this in a way that we know will work. the only way to answer this question is to face the truth. politicians have lost for gun free zones at schools. they have issued press releases and bragging about them. they post signs and advertising them and in doing so they tell every insane killer in america that schools are the safest place to inflict maximum a ham with minimum risk. however, our nation rewards have gone out of order.
8:06am

8:07am
everyday defenseless. the monsters and the predators of the world know it and exploited. that must change now! the truesth is -special >>- >> the truth this our
8:08am
society is populated by an unknown number of genuine monsters. if people that are so deranged and evil and they are possessed by. boys and demons that no person can comprehend what they're doing. a walk among us every single day. does anyone really believe that the next adam lanza is not planning his attack on our schools. he probably is already identified at this very moment. how many more copycats are waiting in the wings for their moment of
8:09am
fame. from a national media that awards dealt with wall to wall attention. they give them a sense of identity that they crave. they provoke others to try to make their mark. a dozen more killers, how can we possibly give, how many are given our nation reason to create un act of national data bases of the mentally ill. the fact is this would not even address the much larger criminal class. killers, robbers, rapists, gang members who have spread like cancer and all of our communities. meanwhile,
8:10am
while this is happening federal gun proc;s have increased. so now people decline to prosecute these criminals. by the crimes are still increasing for the first time in 19 years spirit had a another hurricane, terrorist attacks, or some other national man-made disaster and you have a recipe for a national nightmare. >> here is a another dirty truth. it the media tried their best to conceal this. they exist in this country sadly a calloused, a corrupt shadow of history that
8:11am
